A Crowd in Black Remembers an 'Honest' Musician
Sonia Sanchez, 27, remembers the very first time she heard the Ramones. It was years ago — she and a friend were the last two stragglers in a club in Spain — and the disc jockey let one of the band's records spin from start to finish.

"I just ran to the turntable and tried to see what it was," Ms. Sanchez recalled. "I said: `This is my thing. I've finally found my thing!' " (Free Registration Req'd) More...

Pain relief without drugs?

FEEDBACK@markelliot.com TODAY
To: FEEDBACK@markelliot.com
Subject: thanks

Hi Mark,

This isn't really an e-mail asking for help or anything, I just wanted to let you know how much I love your show. Also, I wanted to say thanks for your show last week on OCD. I've had it for years ( now I'm 16). People really need to know about OCD, because it doesn't seen to be something everyone wants to talk about. And it's so important that the stigma of being "crazy" when you have OCD is eradicated.
Anyway, I also wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your spin on psychological drugs. I've never been on them even though "I should be", and I'm doing fine. It even helps knowing that I don't need drugs to be okay.

Why Doctors Don't E-Mail

DR. ADAM SCHNEIDER, an internist in Austin, Tex., is as computer-adept a doctor as you are likely to find. He uses a Compaq iPaq hand-held for quick access to reference materials and medical records and to navigate the Web. He has three computers at home, and he is the one who configures all the computers for his practice. (Free Registration Req'd) More...

Connecting Depression and Artistry

Everyone knows that creative geniuses are all mad. At least that is what the time-honored notion linking creativity and mental illness holds.

Recently, this was underscored by "A Beautiful Mind," the film about the Nobel Prize-winning mathematician Dr. John Forbes Nash Jr., who struggled with schizophrenia. Bedeviled by hallucinations and delusions, Dr. Nash is seen scribbling mathematical formula on his Princeton dorm window and doing pioneering work on game theory in a pub. But in real life, Dr. Nash accomplished his greatest mathematics before his illness really took hold. (Free Registration Req'd) More...

Do you spend a lot of time worrying about the toxic component of your urine or hair? The pH levels in your homegrown Big Buddha? Or the precise location of your nearest doob-positive criminal attorney?

Or when "Stoner of the Year" Snoop Doggy Dogg urges you to "blaze up one of them blunts," do you reach for the Big Bambus? If so, you must already be familiar with High Times, the magazine devoted to pot and its squiffy-eyed devotees.

By Mark Elliot

Imagine being addicted to a drug like heroin and trying to find an effective remedy that works fast and keeps you from going back again.
How about Spit- therapy? That’s one where other addicts in treatment spit on you as a punishment for wrong-thinking. Never heard of it?
Well, how about Desert Therapy? As one organization explains it: "providers who are committed to the utilization of outdoor modalities to assist young people and their families to make positive change."
Never mind that it’s for 21 days where nothing is done to address the issues of addiction, except to place the addict somewhere not listed in the Zip Code Directory…Sound good?
